[applause] and so that's the good news. the good news is we have success, and it's happening in our states, and we can learn from that to tell our friends and our colleagues in washington how to move forward. because, you see, in the states to be successful we have to be optimistic. we have to be relevant. and most importantly, we have to be courageous. let me talk to you a little bit about each of those three things. you see, when it talks about being inspirational and optimistics, one of the things that's interesting is when i first ran for governor -- i have to say first because who would have thought i'd have to get elected twice in the same term -- [la

so, the government is not going to take 10% of my taxed money out of my savings account. i'm going to go to the bank and withdraw my money. the cypriotic equivalent of uncle sam, can't do that to me so they shut down the banks. so what happened today? >> the vote on whether or not the cypriot government is going to be able to reach into a private bank and take some of that money, the vote is in absolute chaos, megyn. about an hour ago, the ruling party said it would abstain from taking part in this vote. then it issued a call to delay the vote for one day. then the finance minister of cyprus resigned, but his resignation has not yet been accepted. in other words, this is a chaotic situation and the bailout of the whole country at this moment is in limbo, but to get back to your main point, megyn, you're absolutely right. we've reached an international financial principle here. in the past, if you lent money to a bank or a country that was going sour, you, the lender, lost money. this time around, it's a new principle. if you have money in a bank account in that country, you will lo

$244 billion in cigarette taxes and settlement money from the case against big tobacco. yes, that is nearly one quarter of a trillion dollars. this year alone, the states will get nearly $26 billion. so that money is supposed to go to ending smoking, funding tobacco prevention programs, but it doesn't. of the $26 billion this year, about 1.8% is actually going to go towards prevention. the states use the rest for, well, a whole lot of other stuff. they obviously need the cash desperately. new york city will receive $625 million this year and has set aside $7.9 million for prevention programs in its 2013 budget, even less than the national average. the truth is states and cities in america say they want smoking to end, but they rely on people smoking to make ends meet. that's an inconvenient truth. mayor bloomberg is really serious about stopping smoking, he should ban that and fight that battle, not the silly soda stuff.
